After falling in love with one of our designer frames, the next step is to determine which brand and style of lenses will serve your eyes best.
Light changes everything. Improve your adaptation from outdoors to indoors, and vice versa, with transitions lenses. Transition lenses darken in sunlight to help protect your eyes from harmful UV rays that can compromise your vision and eye health.
Anti-reflective coatings reduce light reflections that bounce off of your lenses. This allows more light to transmit properly into your eyes for clearer and brighter vision. Cosmetically it makes your lenses looks practically invisible. Let people see more of your beautiful eyes and less reflections!
In this digital age, we are spending increasingly long hours looking at screens every day, both at work and at home. Unfortunately, our eyes are not optimized for prolonged digital device use, and the increased amount of blue light it exposes us to. That is why too much screen time can lead to digital eye strain and dry eyes.
Blue light protection helps mitigate these symptoms by filtering out harmful blue light.
Eyes lose the ability to capture light as we age. This is called poor contrast. Poor contrast makes it difficult to drive at dusk and throughout the night. Digital lenses increase contrast by 30% which leads to sharper and clearer vision in low light. Digital lenses also allow for larger viewing areas!

OVVO Optics’ eyewear is 100% manufactured in family-owned plants in Europe, where each frame goes through 65-85 steps before it is complete. First, using German engineered laser technology the frames are cut out from raw steel sheets imported from Sweden. Then, they pass through the various stages of hand-manufacturing. With great precision and attention to detail the frames are hand-polished, painted, decorated and assembled by a crew of 250 dedicated eyewear production experts. At each phase, they are inspected with care for highest quality assurance.
